Miraclebody Jeans

Once while playing 'Which would you rather?' I came up with the following: Mom Jeans or Muffin Top? While I happen to believe that MomJeans are super comfortable, they look like, well, MomJeans. Anything with a lower rise has potential for MuffinTop, no?

Not anymore.

While in NYC last month, I was lucky enough to be an invited guest of the Getting Gorgeous Event, a thoughtfully planned-out celebration of style, beauty, and adornment.

Of the many companies and brands represented at this event, I know I would not be alone in stating that getting to know more about Miraclebody Jeans by Miraclesuit was one of, if not the, most exciting. Let me break it down for you:



I saw the sloagan, "Look 10 lbs. lighter in 10 seconds!" and was skeptical. "Sure," I thought to myself, "Slimming pants which will slim the extra skin right up over the waistband and make me look like I'm wearing a fleshy innertube for a belt." Even so, I approached the table of very helpful, very engaging MiracleBody reps.

"What size, Darling?" I was asked.

"Um...14, please."

"Great. Boot cut or skinny?"

Let it be known that I had never in my life donned a pair of skinny jeans. (Well, maybe when I was in, like, 4th grade, but not because it was fashionable to do so.) I had always presumed that they were not for me, in addition to looking to be uncomfortable. Yet being in the Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of, I answered with a smile, "Skinny, please."

Joining the other women behind the partition, the excitement about these jeans was palpable. Having removed my skirt, I slid on the jeans and . . .

Wow.

I felt amazing. (You may need to know that for this lady who doesn't necessarily enjoy shopping for herself, the feel of clothing being enjoyable is the Number One Requirement.)

Carefully, I approached some of my friends. Stylish friends. Friends who know about fashion. They validated me: I looked fly.

Awesome. My first try of skinny jeans: success.

I took them off and folded them, replaced my skirt, and approached Robert Verdi. "Do you love them?" he asked.

"Yes, very much, thanks for letting me try them on."

"Oh, Honey. They're yours."

*jaw drop*

These magical pants, the ones which lived up to their slogan: they're mine.

And, as fate would have it, the generous people at Miraclebody have agreed to award a free pair of Miraclebody Jeans (ARV: $110) to one of my readers.

This is your lucky day.

I'm already a fan of you and now, them, on Facebook and I like the slim skirt they had on their website. I think that's three, right?

Wonder Woman said...

I looked at their sight and would also love the Skinny jean. I own one pair I found at DI and sometimes they look okay, sometimes they don't.

I have a feeling I wouldn't have that problem with jeans from Miraclebody!

Queen Scarlett said...

YO!

Count me good for all SIX entries!

I'm off to do it right now.

As for the MiracleBody site - dude... I have vowed never to wear skinny jeans or leggings due to my ample bottom half, and flappity flap thighs... but if they really are miraculous... it's time to dip my leg in!

CHEERS Mrs. CALIENTE!

KateandMatt said...

Wow. You look great in those jeans. I think I like the boot cut jeans. Though some of the skirts are really nice as well.

I'd love to win this contest!

Unfortunately, I only have two entries, I've 'liked' this on Facebook and this comment (plus the visit to the website) this is my only entry as I'm not a twitterer and don't follow tweets or whatever.

Here's crossing my fingers anyway.

Steph said...

HELLO HOT STUFF!

The Lewis Family said...

OK, I like both sites on facebook, I am now following you on twitter (under my thestampdr tag ;) ) and though the bootcut jeans are hot to trot, I am really feeling that slim skirt, I think that is hotness in and of itself... though your pic is a close second ;)

So that is 4 entries, yes?

Almost made that "blood cut", apropos no?

Great find!

I'd have to go with the Samantha boot cut. I certainly need a miracle. My 6th baby was born 2 years ago, and I'm still carrying around a 50 pound bag of dog food, so to speak. It would be nice to feel good again. :)
